Yep, good cold open choice

Did Tom Hanks forget a coat?  He looks cold and miserable.

Ted Nugent would have been there performing, but he was killed during Obama's tyrannical rule.

Lin Manuel is on now.

Neato. ^_^

I'm watching it delayed (Yo Yo Ma just finished). I liked Jon Bon Jovi.

It's 2021 and Springsteen and Bon Jovi are doing live, international broadcasts.

// And Joe's talking after doing like 400,000 things after inauguration. I'm giddy.

This is all perfectly cromulent. Good performances by A-list talent. No craziness, no spite. All well done and tasteful.

I'd forgotten how refreshing it is when everything is normal and boring.

I just want one Simpsons reference like maybe a "remember to social distance, so you can't tussel my hair"

Harris about to speak.

I can't believe that it had to take a change of administration to acknowledge and memorialize the staggering loss of life to a virus. The difference in leadership is already in stark contrast.

Also, next time someone tells you that voting doesn't matter or that both sides are equally bad, please feel free laugh right in their unmasked face.

A hell of a lot better than dingbat's whites only America. A lot of people didn't survive it.

Very inspiring and good music. Well done.

NICE camera swing from Kamala to Legend.
 
2021-01-20 9:35:03 PM  
I'm enjoying it.
 
2021-01-20 9:37:24 PM  
John Legend was great. Most of the performances have been. To avoid commercials I turn it to MSNBC while the networks show ads.
 
2021-01-20 9:38:33 PM  
Yeah, but trump had those piano guys, so ya know...there's that.

I bet trump is watching and is so pissed that he couldn't secure this kind of talent for his inauguration.

Honestly, they should put This Land is Your Land on the shelf for the next few formal inaugurations after Pete Seeger, his grandson, and Bruce Springsteen killed it at Obama's.

J Lo was underwhelming.

You know what.
Now that he no longer holds the levers of power, I don't care what he thinks!
I don't care how he feels.
Why? Because it no longer can affect me.
All I care about is that justice is served should he be found guilty for his many, many, many crimes he's been accused of.

But Gaga more than made up for it

I'm enjoying this.  While I know this is manufactured, it still is fresh and uplifting, as if we we are entering into a new world.  A comforting normal new world.  While I wish covid never existed, I really like how it has pushed producers, directors, entertainers and actors to think outside the box to create what we are seeing tonight.

We've been watching exclusively on CNN and I've been getting this weird feeling every 10 minutes or so that we're about to go to commercial...and then we don't.

I just said to my wife "Is it wrong that I'm totally buying this?"  I explained it as a scoop of vanilla instead of some crazy flavor.

Yeah, but most of them weren't live, which is disappointing.  Can't think of a reason why not.

Well, other than Timberlake.  He probably was "too good" to do it live.

I like this virtual popping around the country thingy.

Who is guarding the National Archives?

Good lord was Harris' speech corny. So many cliches.

Don't get me wrong ... still way better than anything in the last four years.

With that I agree completely along with the recitation by the poet laureate. They both soared.

The tone of watching Obama, Bush, and Clinton chatting is so weird. And two of them seem so geriatric. But I'm glad they're doing it. Even if I'm thinking critical things about most of them. Mostly because of the implicit criticism of Trump that is happening with it.

A pep rally really ought to have cheerleaders

Demi Lovato doing Lovely Day is so great.

I'm being told that Florida Georgia Line has split because one of the guys supported the shiatshow at the Capitol.  Hoping this means they close their joint in Nashville.

Empathy is a wonderful expression of love.

I would say that is one of the the starkest differences from four years ago.

Joy. Love. Hope.

This is what I witnessed today.

Biden and his family seem to think so too.
